Murals brighten Glen Innes
Hundreds flocked to The Bradley Lane Project to watch live mural painting.
Along with the live painting of outdoor murals by New Zealand artists, the associated art exhibition, artist talks, and panel discussion all moved online in response to Covid-19.
Event founder and producer, Gary Silipa says he’s excited a range of experiences were on offer, so everyone could enjoy themselves. “2020 has been a challenging year for many people and now more than ever we need opportunities for community connection and engagement.”
The Bradley Lane Project, which is supported by several groups including Tamaki Regeneration, is currently run by the TGTB Charitable Trust, which took over organising the event in 2017. This year’s talented line-up of artists included Sean Anoma, Rebeccater Borg, Bobby MacDonald, Holly Rocck, and Levi Hawken painted the murals at the event, which is well known internationally amongst the graffiti art community.
As part of the programme this year, Bradley Lane Project also partnered with the Glen Innes Family Centre to deliver a series of workshops which ended in a live mural painting.
